1993 Plymouth Voyager Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 81,000 miles


I have a 1993 Plymouth Voyager. I bought a 7yr / 70,000 mile extended warranty for it. At 81,000 miles, the transmission failed, just 6,000 miles out of warranty. I had this transmission serviced religiously by a Plymouth Chrysler dealer. The servicing by the way was expensive. Yet, the Xmission still failed prematurely. Since then, I've read dozens and dozens of complaints of Chryler mini-vans having Xmission failure. I also followed a big news story in North Carolina in which Chrysler Corporation was found guilty of "Lemon Laundering." They had to refund a California customer's money for a lemon minivan he bought. Then, Chrysler simply shipped the car to North Carolina, which has lax lemon laws, and re-sold the lemon car here. They got caught.

Being trusting, and wanting to buy American, I also bought another Plymouth Voyager van in 1999. This was just before my older 1993 Voyager's Xmission failed. Guess what? The 1999 Voyager's transmission is now failing, at about the same mileage - 91,000. The "service engine" light came on, and the car began lurching, a sure sign of transmission problems. My mechanic called Chrysler and submitted the computer diagnostic error codes to him. The Chrysler man said it was the fluids. My mechanic said the fluids are all new and full, it can't be that. So what does the brilliant Chrysler service man say? Well, just reset the computer so that the "service engine " light will go out.

Don't be stupid. Don't buy a Chrysler product. They launder lemon cars illegally throughout the United States. They produce defective transmissions. Just say no. No Chrysler.
